  • Silks: Unusual Choreography & Unexpected Transitions with Jordann Baker

    Register for Silks: Unusual Choreography & Unexpected Transitions with Jordann Baker

    Location: Sky Candy Main Studio, 507 Calles St

    Price: $60 for 90 minutes
    Date and time: Sunday May 29th, noon-1:30pm
    Prerequisites: An intermediate level of experience on Silks is needed for this workshop. Students should have strong inversions and hip keys, some drops experience, and a comfortable working knowledge of basics like foot locks, front and back balances, and working in-between the fabrics.
    As aerialists, we all love learning new moves that open up our choreographies to new possibilities! Additionally, the best aerial performance pieces are those that incorporate transitions between moves as choreography, just as much as the big moves themselves. This workshop will give students an opportunity to explore some nontypical pieces of choreography that I have learned over the last 10 years, covering a range of skills sets (flexibility moves, drops, strength moves). The combinations will present “setup” time in a choreographic way and challenge your aerial aptitude!

  • Windmills: Technique and Creativity with Jordann Baker

    Register for Windmills: Technique and Creativity with Jordann Baker
    Location: Sky Candy reVamped Studio, 2400 E. Cesar Chavez
    Price: $60 for 90 minutes
    Date and time: Saturday May 28th, 1-2:30pm
    Prerequisites: Level 3 Silks or Rope. An intermediate level of experience on Silks or Rope is needed for this workshop (comfortable at heights, strong inversions and hip keys). Although students won’t need to have a lot of pre-existing knowledge about windmills, it would be helpful for them to have some experience with trying this move, and a general knowledge of how it works. We will be going through a lot of challenging and unusual variations – students with a beginning knowledge of windmills will be able to solidify technique, while students with a working knowledge of windmills will be able to expand into a multitude of variations.
    Windmills are my favorite aerial move! Also called wheel-downs or helicopters in other parts of the country, windmills are fun to do and can take time to master. In this workshop, we will look at windmill technique, including body positions and handwork, and try out a large variety of ways to enter and exit the wrap, including front and back dives, momentum moves and flexibility pathways.
